The Dutch team U20 also enjoyed victory in their second 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship group game. They beat Australia 3-0, thanks to goals from Maduro, Emanuelson and Kruys. PSV player Ibrahim Afellay was not fielded. With one game to go, Holland are now guaranteed top spot in Group A and thus they have progressed to the quarter finals. Hamstring injuryAfellay was troubled by a hamstring injury. The midfielder was on the bench, though. Ajax player Emanuelson filled in for him. It is to be feared that the PSV youngster will also be ruled out for the final group game against Benin, as his coach Foppe de Haan does not want to take any risks. Intensive treatment and individual training have not yet led to a comeback of the talented PSV player. Afellay is not likely to make an appearance until in the quarter final game.DilevskiSpase Dilevski played 52 minutes for the Australian team. The 19 year-old former PSV youth player now shows his skills at Tottenham Hotspur in England. Dilevski moved to PSV three years ago and was fielded in the highest junior teams, before he completed a loan deal with Rot Weiss Essen. He joined Frank Arnesen on his London challenge at the start of the 2004-2005 season.Japan and Benin drew 1-1 earlier on the day. Because of these results, Holland have made sure of the first place in their group.
